My dad was helping me to pack and move one weekend. He left that night to drive back home about an hour away from my house. I got finished packing and moving for the night went to my new apartment. I was woken at about 3 am in the morning by the police officers ringing my doorbell. Imagine how stunned I was. I was told that my mom had called the police department and my dad had passed away. I can't tell you how fast I drove home that night. The memories that ran through my head, the things I wish I could have done to make my dads life easier. He lived a very hard life. I was told my dad came home, had a bowl of chili, went to climb in bed and fell over getting in bed with my mom. My baby sister tried to do CPR to revive him. He died February 5th. We buried him on my birthday February 8th. The only regret that I have, is that I never got to ask him, "daddy are you saved?" It haunts me to this day. I had an older aunt who took care of my dad and his siblings that I talked with one time at a family gathering. It was my dads side of the family. She told me she had a dream of my daddy, that he was in a white robe, and he was saying he was cold to her. It was cold and dark she remembers. She asked me "if I knew if dad was saved?" I felt horrible, sick and scared to think he wasn't saved. It still haunts me to this day. My dad was a good person, didn't know a stranger and would do anything to help anyone. It didn't matter if they we were wealthy or not, dad had a huge heart. My mom has said that she and my dad were members of a Southern Baptist church but I don't know what required membership they had. If we went to church when I was a kid, it was with friends or my nana. I pray daddy that you knew Jesus, it breaks my heart that I never ask you. It haunts me day and night to think that you tried to take such good care of us and it was so difficult. I wish things could have been different. If I had known then, what I do now I would have prayed more and would have made sure that you knew what God has in store for us. I love you daddy with all my heart, I miss you daddy so much it grieves me that you never got to see my husband, my beautiful girls. They miss their poppie and don't even know you. Please make sure that if you know God, ask everyone around you, if they know God. If they don't please take a few minutes to tell them about Him. It is a small sacrifice of time, and effort that we can do. Look what God did for us, He gave His only Son so that our sins have been forgiven and we have eternal life (John 3:16).
